there seems to be a new trend going around the tumblr-sphere of popular blogs pimping less popular blogs, especially “unpopular” fic writers; the premise seems to be finding lesser known authors and giving them props so that people read their stuff and they become more…known. the problem with this is that all these well-intentioned big name blogs are recommending their friends, who are also big name blogs, meaning that smaller, lesser-known, not very popular writers are not benefiting from this setup At All, meaning that it’s not remotely serving its “intended purpose.” like the academy awards, it’s just celebrities rewarding each other for being celebrities.

ETA: man, that sure was short-lived.
